The Boston Globe has this week written a glowing (and very well-deserved) review of TRACEY ULLMAN and her fantastic show Tracey Ullman’s Show, which aired in the UK earlier this year and which is now playing in the USA, Friday nights at 11pm on HBO.
TRACEY‘s wonderful portrayals of some of the UK’s most beloved ‘national treasures’, including Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith, as well as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, has earned her much critical acclaim and admiration since airing in the UK at the start of the year. This week, The Boston Globe describes TRACEY as a “performer who inhabits characters to the point of magic. Ullman…deploys her skills in comic settings [with] the rare gift of thorough transformation. She’s a bit of a miracle, as far as I’m concerned, one of the best sketch artists alive today. She contains multitudes.”
The review continues: “I more than admire her, and place her among a group of paragons of comedy including Lily Tomlin, Imogene Coca, and Madeline Kahn: She knows how to invest her kooky characters with heart, vulnerability, and poignancy.”
